Let L be a level curve of the inverse of the shifted Joukowsky transformation w [special characters omitted] w − 1 + (w − 1) –1, that is, [special characters omitted]In this thesis we investigate the asymptotic properties of the sequence of polynomials that are orthonormal over the interior domain of L with respect to the area measure. We establish strong asymptotic formulas describing the behavior of these polynomials (as their degree increases) at every point of the complex plane.
